Lifesaving Information for Emergencies

The L.I.F.E. File is a place for you to store important medical information that emergency medical personnel (firefighters, paramedics, and hospital staff) need in a time of crisis. By completing the L.I.F.E. File form, you can provide emergency personnel with vital lifesaving information, even if you are unable to speak. It is very important that you keep this information up to date, accurate, and placed in a prominent spot on your refrigerator.

You may obtain the L.I.F.E. File forms and pouches by stopping by any fire station. Replacement forms can be downloaded from the Santa Clara County EMS Agency

How to Use the L.I.F.E. File:

  • Fill out a L.I.F.E. File form.*
  • Fold the form in half and place it in the pouch.
  • Stick the magnetic pouch on your refrigerator door.

*Be sure to include the date that you completed this form. This will help emergency personnel know how up-to-date your medical information is. If you need help filling out the form, speak to your doctor.
